I was so excited to receive this game, was really psyched to have a Diablo like game to play on my PS3.
But I was utterly disappointed within minutes of popping this sucker into the drive.
First issue is the frame rate. For me, it is too low to be playable %90 of the time. Not only that, there is tearing at all times when the picture is moving. Guess they couldn't afford V-Sync with the already terrible performance. Of particular note is that the Inquisitor model is somehow extremely bugged in that it bogs down the performance another %20-30 when you play as him. This is instantly noticeable the second you select him in the character menu.
Characters and cut-scenes are extremely blocky and unnatural as well. Their mouths always keep moving even though they aren't talking and often teleport places because the animation is so bad.
Next is the game itself. Boring. All side quests are "GO THERE, FETCH ME THAT, COME BACK HERE". No thank you.
Spells... you have an extremely small selection, I can see it getting boring really quickly. There is no tactics involved, just mash buttons.
In my first 15 minutes of gameplay my character was stuck against a wall after I summoned a deity creature (that dragon) because he kept pushing me up against the wall.
I put it back in the mailbox after an hour of play. Skip this and get something else. Waste of time waiting for this game
these game feel like for the 90's the camera view is from the top which meas you will only see the head and the top of the trees and every thing looks so little that's if you got these game to play it with a friend like me, if you are going solo then you can move the camera closer but all you'll see is straight down( so stupid) i mean back in the 90's when technology for games wasn't that good all these was ok but then again they had no choice back then, some guys ask why is these game is gets a lot of bad reviews these is why. it's a complete waste of time rent it if you feel like you'll like it.
